Terraquest Ltd. Established in 1984
Terraquest is a privately owned and Canadian registered airborne survey company that has served the domestic and international natural resources community since 1984. During this time the company and their staff have conducted thousands of fixed wing and helicopter magnetic, gamma spectrometry, gravity and electromagnetic surveys in the exploration for base and precious metals, kimberlites, hydrocarbons, uranium, and groundwater. It currently operates 5 systems that are variously equipped with high sensitivity magnetometers and gamma ray spectrometers which are standard systems to map the subsurface geology in advance of ground exploration and subsequent drilling. The company provides a complete service from the planning to the execution and data acquisition, to the data processing and on to the final interpretation. As additional capability, it has considerable flexibility to expand using an established network of consultants and subcontractors, a common practice in this industry that often expand and contract to meet short term market conditions. Terraquest maintains a stable and dedicated core staff of employees that promotes loyalty and retention of expertise. In addition, Terraquest relies on an extended team of sub-contractors and consultants that bring special capabilities and custom skills to projects demanding their specific qualities. These effectively expand the company’s depth to accommodate the variability of the market without sacrificing quality and performance. Those subcontractors who are involved have been dedicated to its needs for many years. The company and its highly experienced staff have performed exemplary surveys for both small and large exploration groups plus many government agencies. Companies such as , DeBeers, Shell, Ashton, Chevron, Teck-Cominco, Goldfields Corp and Rio Tinto Alcan have chosen and trusted Terraquest to be part of their exploration team. In international bidding competitions, Terraquest was rated #1 technically by one of the world’s largest petroleum organizations, Saudi Aramco and to BRGM (Government of France).

Our Structural Multi-View Airborne Geophysical Surveying System combines Magnetics, Radiometrics and our advanced, proprietary XDS VLF-EM technology in a low level helicopter platform to map detailed geological structure. The system is unique in that it is an all inclusive mapping tool housed in one lightweight, portable package. The system is designed to attach directly to the undercarriage of the helicopter via standard attachment points and operates from existing aircraft power. The radiometric crystal pack fits into the luggage compartment while the data acquisition system fits on a passenger seat in a portable case easily accessible to the operator. The potential field sensors are housed in the tip of the stinger itself, providing a 16′ separation from the aircraft. The portable system is ideal for surveying of property sized projects in rugged terrain, in remote areas, typically at 30-50 meters terrain clearance.
